The art of sailing - and of bird watching - pursued at Shreveport Yacht Club

While heat descends upon the city, the sizeable Blue Herons of Cross Lake seem to know that relief lies in the shade of a giant cypress tree hard by the water. Here we have a matriarchal Great Blue who favors the docks of the Shreveport Yacht Club.

Find out more about the art of sailing and the community of sailors at the SYC by visiting the colorful web site generously maintained by member Gary Montcalm, says current SYC commodore Richard Eglin. Both fellows are avid sailors.

Times writer Mary Jiminez visited the SYC junior sailing camp this week. There's another week-long session junior sailing camp coming up July 11, according to SYC instructor David McCary and his assistant, Amanda Baker.
